Top Customer Reviews
After a brief introduction three experienced science writers discuss 20 questions such as 'How Did Life Begin?', 'Are There Other Universes?', 'How Wil We Beat Bacteris?' & 'Is Time Travel Possible?'
Well designed and clearly written 'The Big Questions In Science' is an engrossing and stimulating book suitable for anyone wishing to understand some of the latest scientific ideas.
Not really an in depth science reference book. But more specifically answers a range of unconventional questions like why do we dream?, can computers keep getting faster?, and can we live forever? (to name a few).
The book is hard bound and of good quality overall.
